1. Why did Cleveland Metroparks select SF Bay Coffee?

We set out a goal to eliminate the k-cups in our shops because of the unnecessary waste created by each coffee we sell.

We researched a more eco-friendly option, which led us to SF Bay Coffee.

We sampled the product, and enjoyed the taste. In addition, we loved the fact that the packaging and the pods were a more sustainable alternative to the k-cups.

2. Does SF Bay Coffee align with the vision and mission of SF Bay Coffee? If so, in what way?

Our missions are Conservation, Education and Recreation.

This coffee ties in with our conservation mission. We also hope that it will educate our guests on the wasteful nature of the k-cup in hopes they may consider a more eco-friendly option in their homes.


We are proud to provide our coffee to Cleveland Metroparks and look forward to a long-lasting relationship. If you are ever in the Cleveland area, visit a park, their zoo or even hit up their golf course.
